Santana is a lovely town situated in the greenish northern coast of the lovely Madeira Island, famous for its traditional triangular houses with two floors and stem ceiling, coloured with the typical Madeira colours of white, blue and red.
Situated at about 312 meters hugh, from here one has astonishing panoramas over the Island and the Atlantic coast, as well as unforgettable views over the Laurissilva Forest, classified by UNESCO as World Natural Heritage.
Santana is famous for its vivid traditions that have prevailed over the centuries, fact that derivates from its prolonged isolation, as during many years Santana was inaccessible by ocean and land.
Land of fertile soils, here are produced many of the natural products of the Island.

Bonjour, cher ami Aires,
Merci de nous faire découvrir ces curieuses maisons triangulaires pourvues d'un étage (cela doit être très bas de plafond !).
C'est une véritable découverte, et j'apprécie ce genre d'image. Apprendre et comprendre.
